saw in 2011 the politics were miserable. i would prefer to keep the debt ceiling as far away from the fiscal cliff discussion as possible. if you intermingled them, we lose. guest: the debt ceiling is one of the most ridiculous policies we have. you can vote to spend more money and tax less and in the fact you are also voted to increase the amount the government borrows and you can refuse to raise the debt ceiling. we should be eliminating the debt ceiling. you automatically vote to raise the desolate when you vote to spend money. the idea that we have to go through this whole thing in february again is ridiculous. host: oklahoma, independent line, good morning. caller: this republican party is a joke. they have done nothing to work with this president. they are a bunch of southern republicans. they cannot handle a black man telling them from a leadership position. they take an allegiance to grover norquist. give me a break. the allegiance should go to the united states of america were host: is your solution? caller: i would get rid of all of them, that's what i would do, thank yo

is making. it has failed miserably. it has failed in history. if it fails from campaign economics. the bush tax cuts disproportionately benefit high- income people. if we get rid of those we will save a lot of money and there is minimal risk to the short term income. high income, whether you are with a wall street bond trader or a ceo of a corporation, they tend to be less vulnerable to the ups and downs of their income and middle class people. we need to support those people. that will lock in savings again. host: next caller. caller: why can't we do away with the federal reserve? if they don't have borrowing power, they do not have debt. that we cannot borrow money from china. let's do away with it. everybody buckle down for a decade and let's get this thing came down. host: let's go to our next caller in massachusetts. the democrats line. caller: looking at the fiscal cliff, we go back to 2001 with the lowering of the tax rates, meant to create jobs. but in the past 10 or 11 years, we have not had any job creation whatsoever. we keep going back and hearing over and over again t

illnesses that may make you and i miserable for a day or two, but could be deadly for patients with suppressed immune systems. regular access to ivig therapy means a better quality of life, less disability, potentially the difference between life and death. unfortunately today current law excludes from medicare coverage the items and the services necessary to administer this ivig therapy in the home. where doctors tell us patients with compromised immune systems can benefit the most. the medicare ivig act to date requires the centers for medicare and medicaid services to do a couple of things. establishes a three-year demonstration project to cover these items and services necessary to do this therapy in the home, evaluates the impacts of the demonstration project on access for these medicare beneficiaries, and realizes the appropriateness of implementing a new methodology for ivig in all care settings under medicare part b and updates the previous report on this by the assistant secretary of planning and evaluation. it's my intent that the required study consider the impact of lag

misery? -- miserable, at that point some people lash out in horrible irrational ways and do something rash. and but they usually start planning it but they do something like this. usually even these people usually it's more killing the people at the center of their pain. so if the love life is the the center, girl friends. if it's work they kill their boss. in certain cases they expand that circle and lash out at everyone and that's what we have here. now in situations like this i don't know tho know this particular point. and i've avoided talking toobt actual cause in a case like this because we almost never know with any certainty a week out so i think it's irresponsible to even try to decide what happened in this case. and it's also sort of beyond the point. we don't want to find solutions chasing tafert last horror. we can't solve those poor kids in connecticut. what we can do is look at all the shootings, see what most of them have in common, what's usually behind the problem and solve that. and that's our best bet for stopping the next one. host: take a look at a couple of tweet

sympathetic to my situation. i was miserable. i believe the committee should've acted swiftly to decide a case against john glenn and me. i think warren thought it should have to. politics made impossible for the committee to reach a just result. warren was intent on achieving a just result. he was my friend. he wish i could've been released from the committee sooner, but he could not and would not value our friendship more than he valued justice. that was a lesson of integrity i did not enjoy learning, but i am glad i learned it. i'm glad i learned it from the example of warren rudman. the night before the 2000 new hampshire primary, warren graciously hosted a dinner for me at his home. he gave a toast and said we would win. he said he was proud to be art of a campaign. i remember thinking, win or lose, i had been part of something that warren rudman is proud of. i was a very proud man indeed. besides being gruff, he was first and last, a man of integrity. rest in peace, old friend. we miss you a lot.
